Question about Panasonic Home Theater System System

3 Answers

Panasonic SA-HT692 My system is a 5 disc/dvd changer. The problem I'm confronting is when I turn on the dvd player, I'm getting a message that flashes on the screen that reads "INIT" then "PLEASE WAIT" and it's not allowing me to open the disc draw to load a dvd. Can someone please advise me as what to do. Thank you Abel

I had the same problem.  I moved the carousel by hand while the sensor was trying to engage and it finally found its spot and spun a couple times and realigned the disc and now it works fine

Thanks for your help, but I couldn't wait any longer and took care of the problem. This is what I did to fix it: With the dvd player unplugged, I removed all the screws and opened up the dvd player to make sure that there was no dvd stuck inside. Once I confirmed that there were no obstructions, I then proceeded to plug in the dvd player so I can see how the player reacted to the error messages. I noticed that every time I pressed the eject button, the section where the sensor reads the disc was slightly moving but not fully reacting. So right above the laser sensor apparatus, there's a white plastic circular piece and I moved that around a few times and it did the trick. Problem solve, the dvd player is working like a champ. Hope this helps if someone out there that has the same problem.

That just happened to me last night. do you know if there is a disc inside the player? it's possible it is stuck and preventing the tray from opening.

DVD player not working.


Hello
The changer mechanism should be suspected. It is a skilled work to look into. You have to disassemble it. There are three microswitches inside the mechanism, which give signals of the state of the mechanism to main system control IC. If the loading gear wheels have some problem, these witches won't engage well, and the the whole mechanism will be inoperative.

I have a Panasonic SA-PT960 surround sound/dvd player. Whenever I turn it on I get a chgr err flashing on the screen and a loud grinding noise


There is a fault with the DVD Changer and the noise is the gears grinding. This is a common fault with these units as a small arm within the unit breaks and blocks the mechanism.

You can either try and replace the complete DVD Changer or remove it and just us it as a surround sound system with your auxiliaries connected to it.
